    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    Wasting Time...

       There's nothing that wastes time quite as good as watching TV or playing computer. Nor can you remember the details of what you did/watched the next day. Is it really worth it?
       The time we're here on this planet belongs to God. Is this how he wants us to spend it? I really doubt it... What do you accomplish by doing nothing? ( obviously... nothing! )
       But then again, I believe that we often try to do too much. God wants us to slow down and think once in a while. How do we keep this balance?
       Pray about it. Ask God how He wants you to spend your time today. I promise he won't let you down in showing you can do.

       I, unfortunately, have been wasting way too much time recently. I've been playing one computer game the whole day the past week. I pray that I will be able to break this addiction and get back to more important things.

       I hope that you'll learn a lesson from me, and don't become too 'obsessed' with things that are not important to life or your relationship with God.

    Yeah, self-control and moderation are good things! But, would you say that this blog is a waste of time. I think talking about God and trying to learn more about Him is definitely worthwhile! Spending ALL your time on here isn't good, but spending some time here will probably be better for you in the long run :) Hooray for blogs! And for people who use their time on them wisely :)
